HC Deb 05 May 1856 vol 141 c2033

said, he wished to put a question to the noble Lord at the head of the Government with respect to the adjournment of the House for the Whitsuntide recess. He believed the House would receive with great satisfaction the announcement that the adjournment was to extend from Friday next to the Monday week following; and he wished to know whether the noble Lord would give his assent to such an arrangement?


said, he only proposed that the House should adjourn from Friday to Friday, and he thought it would be a pity that they should at that period of the Session lose a Friday evening. But, at the same time, if the House out-voted the Government upon the subject, the Government would be competent to submit to their decision.
